More Wilkie


From "Oxford Blueprint," the newsletter of the University of Oxford, 10/31/02:
New Professor of Pathology

Andrew Wilkie, currently a Wellcome Trust* Senior Research Fellow in Clinical Science based at the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, has been elected Nuffield* Professor of Pathology with effect from May 2003 when he will become a Fellow of Pembroke College*.

Professor Wilkie, who is also an Honorary Consultant in Clinical Genetics at the Department of Medical Genetics, Churchill Hospital*, has been a Professor of Genetics at Oxford since 2000.

Over the past nine years Professor Wilkie's research has focused on the developmental genetics of skull and limb malformations, caused by alterations (mutations) in genes involved in the normal processes of embryonic development. In 1995 Professor Wilkie's group discovered the cause of Apert Syndrome, which is characterised by both craniosynostosis (fusion of the skull bones) and syndactyly (fusion between the digits). Professor Wilkie works closely with the Department of Plastic Surgery at the Radcliffe Infirmary where many affected children are treated.
